time can be both a dirty and clean four letter word- it's either i don't have [enough] time, or too much time on my hands [never the case for me!]. when i was in high school one of my best friends used my notebook to do his "song of the day" lyric. usually it was about how he felt, i know-- my notebook, his feelings-- why pray-tell? anyway, they were usually pretty good lyrics. i kept that notebook for years, and thought it would turn up, but when we moved this last time, i realized it was gone for good- soooo what does all that have to do with this post-

well, since i'll be turning the BIG 4-0 in 8 days, i'd say i've seen a bit of time go by, this weekend i was please to have plenty of time to get caught up on stuff [especially the "fun" stuff] updated the literary side bar: finally!---time is a valuable resource, and one that seems very scarce- more scarce once we're adults [parents], and have to spread our time between family members, children, friends, work, play, hobbies, and yourself. it's enough to make your head spin! again i digress- thought it would be fun to mention some lyrics that have the word-
i'd love some feedback on which one's i didn't think of, so here goes . .

time is on my side-rolling stones---time slips away, and leaves you with nothing-bruce springsteen----i've got too much time on my hands-styx---there is a time for every purpose under heaven-the byrds and ecclesiastes 3:1---time keeps on slipping- into the future-steve miller band---time to learn-time to care-pet shop boys [somewhere]---who knows where the time goes-10,000 maniacs---time may change me, but i can't trace time-david bowie--take time to celebrate-point of grace---i think i like this one the best♥

They say that these are not the best of times
But they're the only times I've ever known
And I believe there is a time for meditation
In cathedrals of our own
- billy joel, summer highland falls, and a real favorite of mine - it's got to be more about living right now than in the past (or the future). funny how life milestones make us contemplate all that stuff!
